When you look at Travis Berning's pottery you can almost feel his life coming through in every facet of his art. His childhood on a farm in Western Kansas made him love the combination of hands-on physicality and sensitivity to nature that is so evident in the strong forms of his pots. In 1991 Travis began his college experience at Garden City Community College on a two-dimensional art scholarship in drawing and painting. After taking a class in ceramics, however, Travis realized he wanted to work with clay. His painting professor urged him to remain in the painting program but it was too late. He had a natural passion for pottery.
